The second measures the role of electronic social networking in their assimilation of the values; it consisted of 46 items. The sample included 730 students who were recruited in a simple random manner to participate in the study. Participants’ value assimilation degree was moderate; the overall average scored 3.35; social networking role was moderate; also the overall average scored 3.63; the value of teaching and learning was the highest M = 3.89, while social values scored the lowest M = 3.21.
